Just when we thought Darran `The IceMan ` McMullan couldn’t step-up his game anymore, well think again as the Ballygowan man hooked up with local business entrepreneur Mr Gary Withers, owner of Peninsula Print in Newtownards. The family owned business based in Newtownards Co.Down is running close to 30 years and have helped Billy Murray and his ProKick team for over 20 years to create a winning combination.
Peninsula Print and Mr Gary Withers have been so kind to our group over the years. Said Billy Murray. “They/he helps us were possible and we appreciate very little bit of help given, especially when all businesses are fighting for their own corner in this difficult market place.
Check-out all the print-work by Peninsula Print for our ‘Lords of the Ring’ event; from Poster, flyers, pop-up banners and to recently erected banners covering the out-side of the Ulster Hall, thanks Mr Withers, see you ringside on fight-night.”
McMullan has less than four weeks to fight-night at the famous old Venue, the Ulster Hall in Belfast. The Ballygowan contender to the WKN world title is both British and Intercontinental Champion, and has a score to settle. He lost his WKN European title in Germany nearly 2 years ago to the German, and again only to lose by split decision at a rematch in Germany earlier in March this year.
Will this be third time lucky against the German champion, Wachs, said Billy Murray:
“The winners here will be the Fight-Fans at the Ulster Hall come September 13th, the first two fights were show-stoppers and I don’t expect anything less from the trilogy. Both McMullan and Wachs know each others fighting style very well now, so prepare yourselves for something very special from both. Darren has fought in Wachs’ backyard on two occasions – lets see how David handles the pressure of fighting in front of the Ulster Hall home crowd come fight-night.”
The former Co.Down man Murray, will stage a special silver jubilee event that will mark the 25th anniversary of the night he became a world Professional kickboxing champion for the first time, and by the way all the training for that fight took place in Murray’s old Gym in Pound St in Newtownards.
The Lords Of The Ring event will have a knock-out SEVEN World championship bouts with his own trained and managed home-grown fighters from the Home of Champions, the ProKick Gym. Murray will stage and host this landmark fight show on September 13th 2014.
